This isn't just a cruise -- it's a four-hour adventure that begins when you climb aboard the Argosy, a climate-controlled ship featuring two cash bars. Soak up the beautiful coastal scenery as the narrated jaunt takes you from Puget Sound to Blake Island. Once docked at the island, you'll disembark to enjoy an appetizer of clams and nectar, then visit the Tillicum Village longhouse for a buffet meal including salmon baked on cedar planks in the traditional Northwest Coast native style. At the end of the meal, enjoy a spellbinding performance highlighting the myth, magic and dances of the native Salish people, complete with high-tech effects. You'll even have a chance to explore the island a bit before boarding for the return cruise. Learn More
We often enjoy a light dinner at Fonte Cafe and Wine Bar before shows at Benaroya. Much nicer than the choices in the hall.Seattle Men's Chorus Holiday Concert: Play It Again Santa dining • Jun 17 2014 star this tip starred

Reviews & Ratings
Rhodes Scholar, MacArthur Fellow, and staff member of Brigham and Women’s Hospital, the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, and The New Yorker, Atul Gawande believes that writing makes him a “happier surgeon.”
Few doctors, let alone residents a year away from looking for a job, would think to publish a collection of their mistakes. But Gawande’s first collection of essays, Complications, did exactly that. His second book, Better, took a broader look at performance, with case studies including the last cases of polio in India and the treatment of battlefield wounds in Iraq. “I was trying to understand the moral dimensions of success in medicine, and talking to medical consultants at executions or war doctors at Walter Reed Hospital was one way of trying to grasp that. Often, going out of the usual lets you see something in an entirely new way.”
In a June 2009 article for The New Yorker, Gawande made a case against revenue-driven medicine that has sparked more conversation in the past decade than perhaps any other single piece of writing on the subject. Combining the policy-wonk’s precise research, the doctor’s insider knowledge, and the writer’s clarity and convention, Gawande admits that his work on the page may be as lifesaving as his work in the OR.
